Web 2.0 = TOTAL PRODUCTIVITY
Firstly, what is a web 2.0? Is it just a web? Hmm well I believe it is more than a web. It is like the second generation of WWW (Web World Wide) which move away from static web sites to more dynamic web sites. It is definitively not refer to any definite change in the technology internet, but more about the behaviour of how people use the internet. Social networking, wiki, blog, podcast are just examples of web 2.0. Web 2.0 let us to put in the internet what we think about a particular topic and get a response of what other think about it.
